The mini pill help


Hi @Dr_Paula
I’ve been struggling with heavy/tender breasts on and off, could this be due to the pill? I’ve been on Cerazette for 8 months. I’ve taken a few pregnancy tests to put my mind at rest (PMS like symptoms made me paranoid because I don’t get a period anymore) and they were negative. Do you think the pill could be causing this even after 8 months of taking them?


Hello @Emma112

Yes it is possible that it is the pill. I think the only way to definitively find out is to stop the pill for a while and record how you feel. I am nervous to suggest this as it could put you at risk of pregnancy, but there is probably no other way to find out other than switching to condoms for a few months and monitoring how you feel.

Many thanks
